Scott Hoffman Black, Executive Director of the Xerces Society (named for the Xerces Blue Butterfly, made extinct by human development of the San Francisco Bay Area), and world-recognized thought leader in biodiversity preservation generally, and insect and pollinator preservation, specifically, discusses the Context and What We Can Do About It! Studies from Germany show a 75% decrease in flying insect biomass, in just 27 years! The foundation of Earth’s ecosystems – especially pollination-dependent food crops, birds, salmon and other fishes, so much of our life-ways are completely dependent on these little creatures. And they are disappearing at alarming rates! By planting pollinator-friendly gardens all over our yards, neighborhoods, towns and cities, and by completely detoxifying our environs and households, We Can Reverse this Awful Trend!
Scott shares the three key problems: Habitat Loss, Poisons like Pesticides; and Diseases exacerbated by Climate Change. And, he also shares the key solutions: Grow A Buffet of Wildflowers, Stop Poisoning Inside & Outside, and Talk with Your Neighbors and Community about This!
